Photo on the Run:  It’s Father’s Day and I was asked where I wanted to go for breakfast. There was only one choice. This Dutch inspired Father’s Day Breakfast at Amsterdam Restaurant was the perfect choice to celebrate the occasion. I also launched my support for the Netherlands in the FIFA World Cup with this Pannekoek. Who are you rooting for?

Happy Father’s Day to all, especially to other dads that love to eat!!

Photo on the Run: Good Mexican food need not be expensive and Latin Fiesta (Rutland, BC) is proof of it. All this food cost us only $28 and there was plenty to go around.

My favourite dish was definitely the Pupusa, an El Salvador famous dish that is a thick corn tortilla filled with Braised Pork, refried beans and cheese, served with curtido and salsa. If you are in the Kelowna area, do check this hidden gem out.

Photo on the Run: BBQ Pork and Garlic Ocean Ramen Bowls with Extra Noodles. I loved the Garlic Ocean Ramen, it is so far my most favourite Ramen served at Tiger Ramen. Try the Sea Salt broth, it is amazing.  We were the first to show up when their doors opened at 11:45 am but within 10 minutes, thus place was packed to capacity. I think the secret is out!

Nishino Sushi

Kamloops, BC

Yes, we drive to Westsyde for Sushi!   Of all places in Kamloops, Westsyde is not somewhere we would have thought of driving to eat at a restaurant let alone, eat at a Japanese restaurant.   Nishino Sushi has changed all that for us as we have already been there twice and both times, we were super impressed by their efficient courteous service and the above average all you can eat (AYCE) lunch items that do not bottom out our wallets.  

Nishino Sushi’s AYCE lunch costs $10.95 and the AYCE dinner costs $19.95 per person.  As we have been there twice already, we have a lot of photos to share and too many to fit into one Tumblr post.  A separate post will contain photos of their menu and more photos.

In this post, I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.  We will definitely drive all the way from Sahali to Westsyde as we feel, Nishino Sushi is well worth the the drive for all-you-can-eat Japanese food.  If you live in Westsyde, consider yourself very lucky to have an establishment of this caliber right in your neighbourhood.  I know Westsyder’s have been lobbying for a Tim Hortons but until such time you get coffee and donuts in Westsyde, embrace Nishino Sushi and eat sushi instead.

Hello Toast

Kamloops, BC

We have walked past Hello Toast so many times but have never ventured inside until today.    A member on my Facebook Page had commented that he was surprised that I had never eaten at Hello Toast so we made it a point to pay a visit for lunch.  

We had one hour to eat as that was what we paid the new parking meters in downtown Kamloops.  As always, the place was packed but we were able to find a table quite easily.  When we saw the restaurant busy, we couldn’t help wonder if we were going to be able to get away in time before our parking time expires.  We were about to find out.

The menu at Hello Toast contained something for everyone, ranging from Breakfast, Soups, Sandwiches, Burgers to Rice Bowls.  The eye-catching specials board is quite a piece of art.  You can also find their Daily Specials online at their Facebook Page but it is not as fun as checking out their board.  

But after all that, we ordered from their menu.  I ordered the Coco Chicken Curry Bowl with Brown Rice.  My beautiful iLove2Shop felt like having a soup as a meal so she ordered the appropriately named Soup as a Meal.  She picked the African Yam Peanut which was accompanied by Sun Dried Tomato and Asiago Cheese wraps for dipping.  

In the Coco Chicken Curry Bowl, a generous portion of succulent chicken pieces cooked in a coconut curry broth that was delicious, creamy and spicy enough for my taste buds.  I especially appreciated that the carrots, jicama and peppers were crunchy and not overcooked.   I don’t usually eat a lot of brown rice but I’m starting to think that I should order them more as it is more healthier than white rice.   The African Yam Peanut soup was satisfying rich, creamy in texture and was just the warm comforting lunch needed for a cold winter Kamloops day in February.  This combination of sweet and spicy was just right.  

It took us a long time to check out Hello Toast but won’t be long before we return as this place has caught our attention.  I saw someone eating the Eggs Benny special and for that alone, I’ll be back.  If anyone cares to know, we had 20 minutes to spare on our parking so all our worries were unwarranted as the service was fast and friendly.
